There are some absolutes in this world. Water is wet. Oprah runs the world. Taxes must be paid. The sun is bright. And, apparently, you can add DMX will be arrested a few times a year to that list. Dark Man X was popped in Arizona for doing 102 miles per hour. Of course, Earl was driving on a suspended and revoked license (you can have both?). He was arrested, booked and cited for criminal speeding, driving on a suspended and revoked license and reckless driving.
DMX was just released on July 18th after serving time for a probation violation, drugs, impersonating the feds or something. I swear I can’t keep up and opening another window to Google it would expend too much energy.
Dear Will Will (isn’t that cute?), you do it for me in an Ivy League-blue blood-frat boy kind of way. You had me at good morning on “Way Too Early” and I have never cheated on you with those other anchoring cats. I also read someone that you’re pretty good in sports which means you can probably hold your own on the dance floor compared to your other rhythmically-challenged counterparts. All those snarky comments, plus that good rap music during your show and the fact that you grew up in Jersey makes me think that you can throw a diamond up with the best of them! Yep, this kitten is smitten! Love, Witch F

Can a fat lady like her fat, he happy in her fat and dress cute with her fat??? I have always wondered this or is it all a facade? This lady looks pretty happy and fashion forward doesn’t she? I know we live in a visual world and there have been studies conducted that prove that thin people get more in this life. But I want to know from women who are fat (and know they’re fat) if this world has a place for you? I know so many women, myslef included, who struggle with their weight and I wonder sometimes when I see really big women if they’ve just decided to embrace it, is changing too hard? Or should we move on from the fat thing and just let people be who they are. If you’re healthy it doesn’t matter right?
I just want to know the general feeling on this….. thanks!
Nick Ashford –one half of the legendary singing/songwriting duo of Ashford & Simpson– has died. Ashford died at a New York City hospital today. He had been suffering from throat cancer and had undergone radiation treatment. Ashford and his wife Valerie Simpson wrote some of Motown’s most memorable hits, including “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing,” “Reach Out And Touch Somebody’s Hand” and “You’re All I Need To Get By,” plus their own hits like “Solid” and “Found A Cure.”
Nick Ashford was 69 years old. Here’s a look back at some of their biggest hits…
#rip Nick and much strength to Valerie and their two daughters.
The Tweet of The Day goes to the NBA’s Blake Griffin. I’m sure you all know by now that Kim Kardashian is marrying some Franken-Lurch-looking dude who plays basketball. Well, someone on Twitter thought Blake Griffin was Kris Humphries (the new Mr. Kardashian) and tweeted their congratulations to Blake. Here’s Blake’s oh so subtle, yet shade-filled response…
